More About the Author

Alan Alexander Milne was born in London on January 18, 1882, the third and youngest son of a schoolmaster. At age eleven, he won a scholarship to the Westminster School. He went on to attend Cambridge University and became the editor of the undergraduate paper, Granta. After graduating from Cambridge in 1903, Milne moved back to London with enough savings to live for one year. He was determined to become a writer. By 1906, he had been offered the position of Assistant Editor at Punch, a classic British humor magazine. He remained at Punch for the next eight years.
In 1913, Milne married Dorothy de Selincourt (known as Daphne) and moved to a house in London's Chelsea section. When World War I broke out, he enlisted in the Royal Warwickshire Regiment, eventually serving in France. During his training period, he wrote his first play, Wurzel-Flummery, which was produced in London in 1917.

By 1919, having completed one book and several plays, Milne finally achieved financial independence. His play, Mr. Pim Passes By, previously staged in London, was produced by the Theatre Guild in New York City. It was as great a success there as it had been on the London stage. Milne was now well established as a witty and fashionable London playwright. In 1920, Christopher Robin Milne was born, an event that was to change the history of children's literature. In 1923, during a rainy holiday in Wales, Milne began work on a collection of verses for children. The result was When We Were Very Young, published in 1924.

Demand for Milne's whimsical work was overwhelming, and in 1926, he duplicated his earlier success with the publication of Winnie-the-Pooh. The sequel, The House at Pooh Corner, followed in 1927. Now We Are Six, another charming collection of verse, followed one year later. It was through these four books, all illustrated by the wonderfully talented Ernest H. Shepard, that Milne acquired a vast audience outside of the theater. In the years since their initial publication, interest in these books has grown and grown.

Milne continued to be a prolific essayist, novelist, and poet until his death in 1956.

Format: Board book
What a pleasure to have well written poetry that appeals to my 2 year old daughter! This book is a current favorite of hers, and we read it to her every night. The classic poems by AA Milne are as appealing to me as they are to her, and the illustrations by Ernest H Shepard make me look forward to my daughter growing up with all of AA Milne's books.
One disappointment - nowhere in the book does it point out (for the parent reading them over and over) that the poems contained in the book are often parts of larger poems written by A.A. Milne. You'll need to find a different book if you want the full poems of "Us Two", "Vespers", and "Nursery Chairs" for example.
Otherwise, a great book to add to your child's collection!

I purchased both My First Winnie-The-Poor and Bedtime with Winnie-The-Poor for my 2 year old granddaughter who is beginning to look at Pooh stuffed animals,etc. These are board books, designed for the very young, but these two books are simply scattered exerpts from the full length book or "Now We Are Six." Some can stand alone, but others simply start with a paragraph from Pooh and end a few paragraphs later with no "ending" understandable for a 2-3 year old. A child fully able to appreciate the exerpts would be better off having the REAL Pooh read to him or her by an adult.

I loved this little book, but then I love A. A. Milne. The book was colorful and the verses were, of course, delightful, especially the one about the train. I'd never seen a board book before. This one is well made and should withstand a lot of handling. I purchased this particular book to accompany the quilt I made for my new grand-nephew. It had the Winnie the Pooh fabric backed with flannel and quilted with hearts and bears. I know the book and the quilt will be enjoyed by my grand-nephew and the family. The book is what makes the quilt special.

Format: Board book Verified Purchase
I bought this book because the theme of our nursery is Classic Pooh and I bought just about everything I could find that was Classic Pooh. Each of the stories are really just short blurbs. Most don't rhyme very well or have much flow...but the illustrations are beautiful. There is one chapter called The Engineer...this is maybe our favorite part of any book we own even if this book as a whole isn't our favorite. It rhymes, has a great flow, and is lots of fun. My 4 month old has loved that one since she was 2 months old. Look forward to reading these to her more as she gets older and can appreciate them a little more.

I do like that it is a board book and therefore child safe for my 2 1/2 year old, she loves to look at the illustrations, as they are on every page and very well done. BUT as previously stated by others, this book is essentially exerts from all the other Pooh books. These exerts are cute but there are some that end rather abruptly leaving one hanging. Even though my daughter knows all the Pooh stories by heart she was rather bemused on a few of the pages when they ended without resolution.
